Wisconsin missed out on the 1st round of funding for Obama's Race To The Top program. The Governor and Mayor Barrett are blaming the legislature for not stripping the Milwaukee Public School Board of its power. Its democracy that's the problem apparently. If you want the public schools in Milwaukee to improve then affluent and middle-class people need to start sending their kids to inner-city schools. Irrational fear by rich, white parents is keeping the Milwaukee's schools in the toilet.
